The Ghana Police Service has captured two individuals in connection with the robbery and murder of a final-year student at Tweneboah Kodua Senior High School in the Ashanti Region.
Following the robbery, Osei Mensah Daniel, Eric Anning, and a youngster allegedly murdered the victim and buried him in a cocoa field.
Chief Superintendent Grace Ansah-Akrofi, Director of the Police Public Affairs Department, issued a statement indicating that suspect Eric Anning was taken to the hospital for treatment of a major cut on his right hand.
Investigators believe the boy was assaulted in Benebene, a community near Fianko in the Ashanti Region, where he ran a motorcycle firm during the school break.
The deceased was allegedly stabbed numerous times in the lower abdomen and chest before being finished off with a club.
The horrible occurrence that occurred on Friday, August 5, 2022, has left the entire city in shock.
“Meanwhile, the criminal and his juvenile accomplice will be hauled before the court today, August 9, 2022,” according to the police statement.
The tragedy has shocked the deceased’s father, Kwame, who has yet to come to grips with his son’s death.
“Because I have no control over the situation, I’ve opted to hand it over to God.” He said he would appeal to the country’s laws to deal with the suspects, and they should be given the same punishment as they did to my late son. Tears welled up in his eyes.
The assembly member representing the region called for a concerted effort to reduce crime in the area.
He also encouraged the government and the Inspector General of Police to expedite efforts to establish a police station in the region.
Some of the kids in the area were upset by the incident.
